|Micro Dispensing Viscous Materials for Printed Devices|
|Keywords: micro dispense, viscous materials, conformal|
|Some printed devices will require both electrically functional and mechanically structural materials. Low viscosity inks can provide good electrical performance but poor mechanical structure. Epoxies are excellent materials for structural enhancement, but can be lossy in some of the RF regimes. New materials need to be low temperature processed, highly conductive, low loss tangents and potentially viscous to maintain shape or thickness. These materials can now be printed with exceptional precision in volume control, high speeds, large area coverage and conformally using micro dispensing. Demonstrations of process and device will be given in this presentation on next generation micro dispensing for printed devices.|
